If the person becomes violent or calls multiple times alert security
If the person has been asked not to call fellowship, transfer them to the Security Director
and alert the Security Director of the problem.
In the event that you feel threatened in any situation or there is a guest in the lobby that is
making other guests feel uncomfortable please alert security by calling the security cell phone
and using the following “code name”: XXXXXXX
Security Officer: “Church Security this is ________.”
You: “Hi, XXXXXXX, This is (Your Name) at reception, Could you please come to the front.”
Security Officer: “I’m on my way”…
Remember that if you use the security code this means you need assistance immediately and it
is a threat situation.
Our Security officers will be instructed that if they hear the word XXXXXXX they will immediately
respond to reception.
ALWAYS remember to use common sense in each situation, if at any point you see any
suspicious activity please report it to security immediately.
It is of utmost importance that all security situations remain strictly confidential.
